TOWN OF ORFORD 



ANNUAL TOWN MEETING 



March 9, 1993 



COUNTY OF GRAFTON, SS 



NEW HAMPSHIRE 



The polls were opened at 4:05 P.M. The ballots were counted (632) and the voting began 
for the officers on the Australian Ballot. 

The Annual Town Meeting for the Town of Orford was called to order at 7:09. Moderator 
Peter Thomson led the group in the salute to the flag. 

At the request of Clerk he made the following corrections in the Vital Statistic Records as 
printed in the Town Report: Paul Dalton WAS NOT married, his son JAMES was. G. Clifton 
Huckins' date of death should have bveen 12/9/92 instead of 12/8/92. This was an error 
on behalf of the signing physician and was not corrected until the reports had gone to 
print. KYLE RICHARDSON WASHBURN SHOULD HAVE BEEN LISTED UNDER BIRTHS, 
NOT DEATHS. This was a printer's error. Also, certificates issued - 13 and certificates 
recorded was in reference to the MARRIAGES, NOT BIRTHS. 

A motion by David Bischoff and seconded by Julia Fifield to dispense with the reading of 
the warrant was passed with a voice vote in the affirmative.

BUDGET COMMITTEE REPORT 

The Budget Committee is in agreement with the Budget now proposed by the Selectmen. 
We (the Budget Committee) attended two rounds of individual budget presentations to the 
Selectmen, a working session with the Selectmen in which we jointly refined and agreed 
upon the Budget, and a noticed formal hearing with public discussion (a new requirement 
of the State). Two small adjustments were made to the budget as a result of the hearing. 

Throughout these meetings it was obvious that both the individual department heads and 
the Selectmen have diligently tried to keep the Town Budget and resulting taxes from 
increasing. There are few, if any, places left to trim without major sacrifice or service 
reduction with the possible exception of the interest on the tax anticipation note. 1994 will 
have the property tax billing done twice, June and December. The majority of borrowing 
now occurs after June, when half of the taxes are due. This situation should lead to a 
dramatic reduction in both the need to borrow money, and the cost of the loan. The 
budgeted $18,000 should be sufficient, even in the worst possible case.

GROUP LICENSES 

If the number of dogs does not exceed 5, the fee shall be $12.00. 
If the number of dogs exceeds 5, but does not exceed 10, the fee shall be $20.00. 
If the number of dogs exceeds 10, but does not exceed 25, the fee shall be $25.00. 
There shall be an additional fee of $1 .00 for each dog in excess of 25. 

Proof of rabies and altering is required. 
All dogs should be licensed by April 30, 1 994 to avoid any penalty. 

*The additional $2.00 fee of each dog license will be sent to the State Treasurer 
and the fund will be used to help low income owners get their animals sterilized. 

RSA 436:99, ll-VI requires that all dogs and cats have rabies shots once they reach 
the age of 3 months. This became effective on January 1, 1993. The first rabies shot will 
be good for only one year, on a young dog or cat, but a three-year vaccine will be given 
thereafter. 

Rabies is a viral disease which attacks the central nervous system in mammals including 
wild animals, pets and humans. If untreated, it is almost always fatal. 

Rabies is spread from a bite or contact with the saliva of an infected animal. An indication 
that an animal has rabies is a noted change in its behavior such as the normal loss of fear 
of humans or a display of hostile actions. Rabies is impossible to diagnose without a 
medical test. 

Rabies is preventable. Dogs, cats, horses and other domestic animals can be vaccinated 
against the disease. If the vaccinated pet comes into contact with an infected animal, the 
disease will not spread. However, humans who come in contact with the saliva from a rabid 
animal on their pet, can get the disease. If exposed to saliva from any animal which may 
be suspected of carrying rabies, the wound or infected area should be soaked for 10 
minutes in soap and water prior to going to the emergency room of a hospital.

RABIES CLINIC 



A "Rabies Clinic" has been scheduled to be held on Wednesday, April 6, 1994, between 
6:30 and 8:00 PM at the Orford Fire Station. This has been arranged with the Oxbow 
Veterinary Clinic of Bradford, Vermont and the Orford Town Clerk, Orford Fire Department 
and the Orford Police Department. Attendance at this program is not only convenient, but 
offers these shots at a reduced rate. 

Dog Rabies $ 5.00 

Dogs EPI Vaccine (distemper, etc.) 10.00 

Cats Rabies and Distemper 10.00 

Cats Leukemia 12.00 

If people see an animal they suspect of being rabid, contact the Orford Police Department 
or the New Hampshire Fish and Game Department; in the case of a domestic animal, 
contact your local veterinarian. 

I wish to take this opportunity to thank everyone for their patience and support during my 
transition period. It has been a very educational year for me. I attended two Motor Vehicle 
seminars, a vital statistic seminar and my first year of the Town Clerk Certification 
Program. I have become a Municipal Agent for Motor Vehicles and an Agent for the Fish 
and Game Department. I will be attending another seminar for boat registrations and the 
second year of the Certification Program.

SELECTMEN 

To write the Selectmen's Report this year was not a difficult task. We had a very busy year 
and we believe much has been accomplished. 

So, let's begin with 1993 in review. 

The winter of '93 brought us a real, honest Nor'easter. In the past weren't they more or 
less a regular occurrence? In any event, we made it through and Gov. Merrill declared a 
statewide disaster. This enabled the towns to apply for relief through the Federal 
Emergency Management Agency. Our Emergency Management Director, Toni Pease, 
along with Peter and Gail, put together the necessary paperwork, and Orford received 
$2,477.00. 

The spring was relatively harmless except for the usual mud season hassles. The cutting 
of trees and culvert replacement on sections of some Town roads, in particular Baker 
Road, Mud Turtle Pond Road, Orfordville Road and Prettyman Road, has allowed for 
improved drainage, more sunlight and a better roadbed. All this helps in the spring. 

The road crew has also continued with the repaving in town. Sections of Archertown Road, 
Townshed Road and River Road were either paved with a pug mill mix, sealed or chip 
sealed. Peter Angwin also did a cost analysis of repaving the Town roads. A copy of this is 
available at the Selectmen's Office. A major portion of Dublin Road was reconstructed this 
year. We hope to repave it in 1994. 

The Selectmen purchased a new computer in 1993. We also purchased a modem that will 
allow interfacing with the Tax Collector's computer. 

A fuel bunker (a storage building for our gas pumps) was built in late spring. The credit 
goes to Chief Jarvis along with Peter Angwin and Ted Nutter for getting this project done. 
Paul Jarvis, Hal's son also lent a hand. The fuel bunker has already begun to pay for itself. 
For example, in 1993 Police and Highway budgeted $10,000 for fuel. The amount budgeted 
for 1994 is $8,200.00. The Fire Department, Parks and Playgrounds and the Cemetery 
Commission will also see savings in their fuel bills. The fuel bunker also brings us into 
compliance with Federal environmental regulations. 

Our major project for 1993 was the renovation of the old 'Ville School Bujilding. We 
encourage everyone to come in and take a look around. Town government and the Police 
Department can now provide services to the people of Orford with elbow room. All of the 
occupants of the new Town Offices are very appreciative of the residents' and taxpayers' 
support. 



54 



The meeting room in the Town Office is available to groups for meetings that would benefit 
the Town. Contact the Selectmen's Office for approval and scheduling. 

It was necessary to replace the Orford Free Library's roof this summer. The cost was 
shared by the Free Library and the Town's contingency fund. 

The Town common/mall received some attention in 1993. Twenty-three trees of varied 
species were planted. Keith Brooks spent many hours watering the trees through the very 
dry first half of the summer. The purchase and maintenance of the trees was made 
possible by a Small Business Administration matching grant. We have received another 
grant for 1994 and work will continue. 

Oh, we can't forget the excitement of the forest fire on Pine Hill, complete with a helicopter 
and plenty of hard work by everyone involved. The cost of fighting the fire was over 
$5,000. The State of New Hampshire has reimbursed us $2,703.28. 

The perambulation of the Orford/Wentworth town line was completed in 1993. This was 
done by Don Tatham and Chase Kling with assistance from Charlie Waterbury and Ernst 
Kling. New markers were placed at the road crossings and the line is now in excellent 
shape. 

Now to look ahead to 1994. We are asking for an increase in the General Government 
Buildings account to do additional work needed on the new Town Office, to cover the 
increased maintenance costs and to make sure we replace another overhead door at the 
Town Garage with an insulated one. 

The Capital Outlay account has $1 ,000 for road signs as part of the implementation of the 
statewide enhanced 91 1. The start-up date for 91 1 is July 1995. All Town roads will need 
signs and each residence should be numbered. The numbering of each house is at the 
homeowner's discretion. 

This coming year we will be sending out tax bills in June and November as voted at Town 
Meeting '93, Article 8. 

We would again like to thank all the residents who have taken the time to get involved in 
Town government this year. A special thanks to Edna Judy Adams for her years as Town 
Clerk. We again want to make a point of thanking Richard Butman. Where would the tax 
maps and deed files be without him? 

We look forward to another productive year and thank everyone for their support. 

Paul J. Goundrey 
P. Chase Kling 
David F. Bischoff

A THANK YOU TO PAUL GOUNDREY 

Paul Goundrey has served the Town as a Selectman for nine years and Is the last of 
Orford's Selectmen to have served prior to the Town's employment of an administrative 
assistant. The twenty-five hours that Gail Shipman spends in the office were once divided 
in some fashion among the Selectmen. This obviously made the job much more demanding 
and time-consuming. 

In addition to the regular duties of a Selectman, Paul has spent many hours updating 
property cards due to changes in laws regarding current use and teaching new Selectmen 
the complexities of tax appraisals. He has also served as the Town's health officer since 
1990. Prior to that he was the Civil Defense Director. Last summer, Paul and Billy Wilson 
spent many hours planting trees on the Town Common to help restore the tree line that 
once graced that stretch of Main Street. Paul has also served as the Selectmen's 
representative to the Niles Fund Committee. At various times during his three terms as a 
Selectman, Paul has also been a fireman, a FAST Squad member and a Little League 
coach. 

Paul, we want to thank you for all you have given to the Town in all your capacities. 
Perhaps a thank you to your wife and children should also be given. 



56 



A THANK YOU TO EDNA JUDY ADAMS 

The 1993 Town Meeting saw the completion of Judy Adams' seventeen years as Town 
Clerk of Orford. This change may well reflect the passing of a New Hampshire institution in 
Orford - that of Town Clerks operating out of their homes. 

Judy expended much of her personal time and resources in updating our vital statistics. 
With the cooperation of the Town and Brown's River Bindery, many of our earliest records 
are now rebound, deacidified and microfilmed. The Town plans to continue this legacy as 
all of our records need protection. 

We now wish to recognize Judy's long-term service to the people of Orford. 
Thank you, Judy. 

Paul J. Goundrey

David F. Bischoff

ORFORD CEMETERY COMMISSION 

The Town Cemeteries have received fine care this year under the supervision and the hard 
work of Fay Bean and a very fine ground crew. Fay had the help of Richard Hill for a 
relatively short period. Unfortunately, Richard suffered an emergency appendectomy 
which kept him on the sick list for the remainder of our season. Because of the extremely 
hot, dry summer, Fay carried on alone. We thank him for his dedication and long hours of 
work. 

Mr. Winston Doe continued the work of cleaning stones in the West Cemetery. His desire 
and ours is that he can complete the work in the upper level in 1994. 

The Cemetery Commission urges residents not to wait until necessity demands the duty of 
selecting a lot in the cemeteries. It is much more pleasant for each resident and the 
Commission as well, if this duty is performed during our fair weather months. Call on any 
one of the Commissioners for their help.

EMERGENCY MANAGEMENT DIRECTOR'S REPORT 

In 1991, with the help of State and FEMA officials, Orford adopted an Emergency 
Management Plan so that we may be prepared for the future and any disasters that may 
occur. It is vital that our community stay current with the changes in knowledge and 
procedures so that we can and will be ready to work as a team should a disaster occur. 

In March of 1993 we had an unexpected snowstorm which the Federal government 
considered a situation for which funds could be allotted to the towns involved. By 
submitting the necessary paperwork, we were able to receive over $2,000.00. 

Much work and planning must be done for the Town of Orford to maintain and qualify for 
emergency management funds. We must hold a mock disaster drill sometime before 
October. You will receive a notice prior to the drill. October is the month applications are 
accepted for additional funds and funds will not be granted unless we hold exercises. 

The Emergency Management Plan can be reviewed by appointment with the Director, Rita 
"Toni" Pease, or the Selectmen. Please call for an appointment first. A copy of the plan is 
available at the Selectmen's Office during regular office hours. For information or 
problems, you may call me at 353-9070. 

Rita Pease 

Emergency Management Director

ORFORD VOLUNTEER FIRE DEPARTMENT 

In 1993 the Orford Volunteer Fire Department responded to 45 calls:

Fire Alarms 


9 


Brush Fires 


2 


Car Accidents

Forest Fire 


1 


Chimney Fires 


6 







In March of this year, the Orford Volunteer Fire Department was unable to get Tanker #4, a 
1963 Ford truck, inspected. It had to be removed from service. That leaves the Town with 
a reduced water supply of 1 ,000 gallons and no means of hauling water to Orford calls. 

The forest fire on Pine Hill, off the Indian Pond Road, cost in total $6,000. This $6,000 cost 
would have been considerably less if Hanover Dispatch had been properly notified when 
fire/smoke was first seen. 

Respectfully submitted, 

Arthur Dennis, Chief 



ORFORD FIRE WARDEN 

Those needing fire permits should call: 

Gerald Pease, Fire Warden 353-9070 

Rita Pease 353-9070 

Arthur Dennis, Deputy Fire Warden 353-4502 

Fire permits are issued in accordance with RSA 224:27. All those burning 
rubbish outdoors are required to obtain an incinerator permit. The only time 
anyone is allowed to burn without a fire permit is when the ground is 
completely covered with snow. Hanover Dispatch, 353-4347, should be called 
prior to burning to give them the location of the fire so that no false alarms are 
called in. 

On May 12, 1993 at 2:16 PM, responded to a forest fire off Indian Pond Road. 

Gerald Pease 
Fire Warden

REPORT OF TOWN FOREST FIRE WARDEN 
AND STATE FOREST RANGER 



During calendar year 1993, the State of New Hampshire experienced an average number 
of wildfires. The three leading causes of these wildfires were campfires left unattended, 
unsupervised children and debris fires that escaped control. All of these fires are 
preventable, but ONLY with your help! 

Please help your Town and State forest fire officials with forest fire prevention. New 
Hampshire State Law (RSA 224:27 II) requires that, "No person, firm or corporation shall 
kindle or cause to be kindled any fire or burn or cause to be burned any material in the 
open, except when the ground is covered with snow, without first obtaining a written fire 
permit from the Forest Fire Warden of the town where the burning is to be done ." 

Violations of RSA 224:27 II and the other burning laws of the State of New Hampshire are 
misdemeanors punishable by fines of up to $1,000 and/or a year in jail and you are also 
liable for all fire suppression costs. 

The State of New Hampshire, Division of Forests and Lands assisted many towns in 
wildland fire suppression during 1993 and participated in many fire prevention programs. 
This year, the nation is celebrating Smokey Bear's 50th Anniversary. The State of New 
Hampshire Forest Protection Bureau will be working with many communities to spread the 
fire prevention message . . . "Remember . . . Only YOU can prevent forest fires." Fire 
prevention is the most cost effective fire suppression tool. Please be careful around fires 
and help us and our communities have a fire safe year.

ORFORD FREE LIBRARY 

Orford Free Library completed 100 years of operation in 1993 for it was in 1893 that the 
State of New Hampshire offered $100 to every town that would conform to certain 
requirements to establish a free library. 

1993 brought an increase in circulation of books, books on tape and videos for both adults 
and children: 1619 as compared to 1498 in 1992. 

Another successful summer reading and activity program was held in cooperation with the 
Orford Social Library. Programs were led by Sarah Schwaegler (wild flowers), Lisa Taylor 
(puppets) and by "Bill" Sharp (band instruments) at the Ville. 

Our library bought into the Libraries of the Upper Valley video collection. This provides 
patrons access to many of the PBS films plus other memorable films of the past. These 
circulate within the local area for a 2-month period before being exchanged for other 
videos. 

Through the generosity of the Friends of the Orford Libraries and the Connecticut Valley 
4-H, we have been enabled to purchase audio cassettes and three classic videos which 
have all been enjoyed by our patrons. 

The heavy rains of August and September caused serious leaking within the library. 
Emergency action was taken by the Selectmen and the faulty roof was replaced. The 
Library contributed $1,100.00 of their 1993 appropriated Town funds toward the total 
expense of $3,095.00. 

Gifts of books have been received from the following people: the late Margaret (Peggy) 
Carter, The Shakespeare Readers of Hanover in Peggy Carter's memory, Ellinor Dyke, 
Mrs. William Tobelman and Donna McKee. 

Generous gifts of money have been received from Friends of the Orford Libraries, from 
Mrs. Alice Hodgson and from Roger Huckins. These gifts comprise the $3,533.13 printed 
in the Financial Report 1994. 

We are most grateful for the support of the Town, the support of the Friends of the Orford 
Libraries, and of our faithful volunteers.

the Orford Free Library (effective summer 1994). Laura came to the Library first as a 
Trustee, serving next as Assistant Librarian and in 1989 accepted the position of 
Librarian. (Laura's mother served as Librarian of the Free Library, too.) We sincerely thank 
Laura for her unstinting efforts and faithful service to the Library and the Town of Orford. 
We will miss her kind and helpful presence at the library but wish her much happiness in 
her "retirement."

ORFORD SOCIAL LIBRARY 

The Orford Social Library has enjoyed a banner year. We are extremely grateful for the 
support, both monetary and from volunteers, which we have received from The Friends of 
the Orford Libraries, Title 11 of the State Library, the Niles Trust, the Town of Orford, the 
Alice Hodgson Historical Fund, and our own coterie of loyal supporters. 

Our Librarian, Sarah Putnam, has brought to all a most remarkable new vision of our library 
and its place in the lives of the children and adults of our town. We are very indebted to 
Sarah for the many, many, extra hours she spends in our library, which I must refer to as 
her "second home." 

We are all happy that our meeting room is being used extensively. As we had hoped it 
would, it is serving as a center for many Town activities. For instance, the Friends' 
Christmas Exhibit, which had not been done for awhile, was a winner - attracting many 
children and adults. 

Our lovely outside Christmas tree donated by Hunter and Jack White, put up and 
decorated by Arthur and Ralph Dennis, has become a seasonal beacon for the Town. This 
year an unusually high wind toppled the tree. It was thankfully put back up by Arthur and a 
group of strong local men. 

We are justly proud of our new computer purchased with a Title 1 1 grant and matched by 
the Friends' gift. We thank Joseph Davis for his research, purchase and installation of the 
equipment, and his continuing interest in monitoring its use. We can expect more and 
more worldwide information to be available via this modern equipment. 

Phyllis Lawrence spurred us on this summer to host one of her famous chicken salad 
luncheons. The extreme heat of the July day conspired against us. However, the cool 
temperature of our meeting room was a welcome refuge. The money raised allowed us to 
repair and paint our fence. 

Again Phyllis joined by SheilaThomson organized and produced a successful Book and 
Food Sale. This money is to fund our Librarian's participation in the State mandated 
Library Technicians Program. 

The Niles Trust Fund was most welcome as it made possible the purchase of some much 
needed reference books. The subject matter of these purchases was correlated with the 
needs voiced by teachers in the Elementary grades. 

Money from Alice Hodgson's Historical Fund and a contribution from Sheila and Tom 
Thomson will start the much needed preservation work on the historical documents and 
pictures collected by Alice Hodgson, now in our library. The pictures need special 
attention as they are used constantly for Town publications and for research. 

The summer reading program, presented in cooperation with the Orford Free Library, was 
again a popular activity and well attended. We thank the many volunteers who helped in 
the success of this joint venture.

Our Board of Trustees now meets at 2:30 p.m. on the second Wednesday of every month 
at the Library. Our meetings are open to all and we invite your input. 

We invite everyone to read our statistics as listed below, and we hope that you feel as 
proud of our library and our Librarian as the Trustees do. 

Respectfully submitted, 
Julia M. Fifield, Chairman

THE LIBRARY STUDY COMMITTEE 

At the March 1993 Orford Town Meeting, the voters of Orford acted on Article 7 of the 
Town Warrant. This article read: "To see if the Town will vote to establish a committee to 
study the Town's library needs." As a result of the vote on this article, a committee was 
formed consisting of two librarians, two trustees and two citizens. The group has met 
through the summer and fall. We have gathered information about the Town's libraries and 
also from surrounding small town libraries. In addition, we have compiled input from 
citizens gained through a brainstorming session. Representatives from the Friends of the 
Orford Libraries were also asked to give their perspectives. Minutes of our meetings are 
on file in the Town Office. Reading copies of the complete Study Committee Report are 
available at the Town Office, and the Social and Free Libraries. 

The Orford libraries have worked hard to bring themselves up to the Associate level as 
determined by the State Library System. They are to be commended for this. The State in 
revising its Standards (effective 1994) makes continued requirements for libraries to 
upgrade. In order to meet the State standards, and thereby receive the State's services, 
the Town will need to support its libraries in this effort. 

The Orford Social and Free Libraries have increased their communication and support of 
one another in recent years. Contact between the librarians takes place on a regular 
basis. The Friends of the Orford Libraries promotes the mutual concerns of the libraries, 
and the Trustees have also met together. The coordination between the two libraries is 
important in maintaining the libraries and services. It is critical, too, in the eyes of the 
State which views them as one entity when meeting the requirements. The libraries will 
continue to work in cooperation with one another. 

The feedback at the brainstorming session showed that townspeople are interested in 
having the libraries increase their services and outreach into the community. The trustees 
and librarians of both libraries are encouraged to actively explore ways to meet these 
requests. 

In studying the financial support other surrounding towns give to their libraries 
it was found that Orford falls short in its support. In order for Orford to have a 
library network that will meet the Standards set by the State, expand library 
services, grow with the demands of the information age, and support the 
Librarians' efforts to maintain qualifications, the Town must increase its 
financial and volunteer support.

NILES COMMITTEE REPORT 

The Niles Committee was formed in 1988 to dispense by request the interest on a gift of 
$50,000.00 to the Town of Orford by Mrs. Lenore Niles. Both Mr. and Mrs. Niles, who 
moved to Orford in 1 950, had a deep love and affection for our town and its people. Mrs. 
Niles passed away in 1988, and left us a generous and unrestricted gift to be used for the 
betterment of Orford and its residents. 

In January of 1993 the Niles Committee voted to set a $500.00 maximum amount 
approved for any application. The Committee has granted requests for money for both 
individual and group endeavors, as well as for projects to improve community property. 

This year money was granted by the Niles Committee to partially fund a tree-planting 
project on theTown Common and to supply the Social Library with research books and 
elementary reading material. Funds were also granted to the Little League program for 
needed improvements on the field and to the Pee Wee Softball League which benefitted a 
large group of our young people. The Committee also funded a babysitting certification 
workshop which was well received, an extended animation workshop attended by school 
students and families and a Poetry Alive series of readings supported in part by the 
Friends of the Orford Libraries. 

Applications for the Niles Committee funds can be picked up at the Town Offices and are 
accepted for consideration by the Committee on June 1 and October 1 of each year. 

Respectfully submitted, 

The Niles Committee

ORFORDVILLE BUILDING COMMITTEE 

At the March 1993 Town Meeting the voters approved the appropriation of $8,147.00 and 
the withdrawal of $13,853.00 from the Town Building and Handicap Access Capital 
Reserve Funds for the purpose of renovating the former 'Ville School Building into Town 
Offices. 

Renovations to the 'Ville School were completed in the Fall of 1993 with an "Open House" 
being held in November. Located in the new Town Offices are the Selectmen, Town Clerk, 
Planning Board and Police Chief. 

With the relocation of the Town Offices to the 'Ville School, the Building Committee's task 
has been to focus primarily on the Town Hall and adjacent former Selectmen's office. 
Various options including sale, lease, or demolition of the buildings were discussed. A 
meeting was held with a representative from the Water Supply and Pollution Control 
Division to explore alternatives for the septic system for each building. 

What repairs should be done to preserve the Town Hall were reviewed and what possible 
uses could be made for the former Selectmen's office were explored. 

The Building Committee decided to ask that Articles be placed on the Warrant (1) to 
determine if the Town wishes to maintain the Town Hall, and if so, whether it wishes to 
raise and appropriate a sum to replace the roof, (2) to determine if the Town wishes to 
keep the former Selectmen's office, and if it does, for what purpose, and if not, whether it 
will authorize the Selectmen to accept bids for its sale or removal. 

Additional and more detailed information on these options will be available for discussion 
at Town Meeting. 

We would like to acknowledge the efforts of all of those who worked to make the transition 
to the new offices at the 'Ville School Building a successful one and to thank the voters for 
providing the financial support to make it happen.

ORFORD PLANNING BOARD 

In 1993 Tom Trunzo, Emily Bryant and Paul Dalton continued their terms. Jim Nickels and 
Shawn Washburn were elected to full three-year terms. Jim Hook was elected to the 
two-year term created by Chase Kling's relinquishing his 1992 elected position. Kling 
continued his position as the Selectmen's representative on the Board. Elizabeth Bischoff 
and Gerald Pease continued as alternates and Jonathan Sands was appointed to the 
open alternate position. 

Board Chairman Tom Trunzo resigned the Chair effective July 1, 1993. Vice Chairman Paul 
Dalton was elected to succeed him, Jim Hook elected Vice Chairman and Shawn 
Washburn, Secretary. Craig Putnam left the Board after many years of dedicated service. 
Our sincere thanks to Craig for his diligent and constructive work. 

During the year, the Board approved four minor subdivisions totalling nine lots and two 
major subdivisions totalling six lots for an increase of fifteen potential building lots in the 
Town. One 3-lot application was denied for lack of information. Another application for a 
10-lot subdivision on Stonehouse Mt. was accepted in August and was still being 
considered at year-end. This is a revised, down-sized and phased-in application for the 
same location denied in 1992 as premature and scattered. The appeal of that denial is still 
pending in Grafton County Superior Court. Two lotline adjustments and one gravel pit 
permit renewal were approved. 

Following initial discussions in 1992, a subcommittee was appointed to develop a set of 
revised regulations for consideration. Major emphasis is to be simplification, ease of 
understanding, consistency and consideration of areas not now adequately defined .such 
as multiple dwellings on single lots. 

Two amendments to the Orford Floodplain Development Regulations were accepted for 
inclusion in the Warrants at the 1994 Town Meeting. 

Respectfully submitted, 

Paul Dalton, Chairman

ORFORD POLICE 

The Police Department's commitment to being a service oriented agency reached a new 
level this year, which was highlighted with the completion of two major projects. They 
were: 

A. Fuel Storage Facility: 

I acted as the general contractor for the design and construction of this facility, 
with the assistance of the highway department. This went on-line on June 22 
and allows for all Town departments and/or committees to obtain low cost fuels, 
under one roof, and minimizes future liability of the Town to fuel spills. A budget 
over expenditure, in the amount of $1,602.00 was incurred; however, this was 
defrayed by: 

1. I submitted the required documentation to the State of Vermont to obtain a 
rebate on the tax charged for diesel fuel that was obtained from our 
previous supplier; this resulted in a rebate of $909.83. 

2. The projected savings on the cost of fuels would make up the remaining 
deficit; actual year-to-date savings are in excess of $800.00. 

B. Town Office Building: 

The Police Department moved into new quarters within the old Orfordville school. 
Operational office space tripled and now allows for you to come into the police 
station and maintain confidentiality, if needed. It also allows for a central 
repository of police files, forms, and other materials required to provide 
professional service. As time permitted, work was done on the new police 
station and the building in general. 

Additional programs/activity of interest this year includes: 

A. Drug Abuse Resistance Education (D.A.R.E.) was continued within the Orford 
School. The 17-week core curriculum was completed with the 6th Grade 
students during the 1992-93 year; commenced with both 6th Grade classes 
during the 1993-94 year. 

B. Working with the Orford Lions Club, the Dartmouth-Hitchcock Medical Center 
and the Home Community Health Care Organization resulted with free, on-site, 
medical screening of seniors at the Orford Senior Center. 

C. Working with the New Hampshire Fish and Game Department, I was able to 
sponsor / present the following educational programs: 

1 . The Off-Highway Recreational Vehicle Safety Education Program and 

2. The New Hampshire Hunter Education (Hunter Safety) Program. 



73 



Orford Police (continued) 

D. Working with the New Hampshire Highway Safety Agency, the following 
programs / grants were brought into the communmity: 

1. The "Captain Smyle" program was brought into the elementary school and 
presented to students in grades K - 4. This is a general highway safety 
program designed to Save More Young Lives Everyday. 

2. Working in conjunction with the Dover Police Department, the "Occupant 
Protection Usage Program" was presented to students in grades 9-12; 
this program included giving those students who wished the oppportunity 
to ride a static sled (The Convincer) that simulates a six miles per hour impact. 

3. Application was made and approved to obtain a grant ($740.00) for the 
students of the high school to have a "Chemical Free Celebration" of their 
achievements. These moneys were utilized to rent the recreational facility 
in Lebanon for their all-night celebration. 

It should be noted that a portion of the funds utilized to provide the above programs are 
supplied by the National Safety Administration, U.S. Department of Transportation. 

A. A Mutual Aid Agreement was entered into with the U.S. Forest Service 
concerning police coverage for the Appalachian Trail that lies within the 
jurisdictional confines of Orford. As the result of this agreement, a grant 
($712.00) was received and a new portable radio was obtained that is 
compatible with the radio frequencies of the Forest Service. 

B. Research was devoted to those mandates that are required for individual towns 
to purchase items through the Federal and State Surplus programs. This 
resulted with the Town filing the required documents and allow for us to obtain 
materials at reduced costs. 

I would like to point out that our fuel skid tanks were purchased through this 
avenue, as well as much of the new office equipment required for the new Town 
offices. 

C. As weather conditions mandated, I worked with the Highway Department and the 
Selectmen in order to keep the roads open; this included trucking fill to required 
areas and, at one time, putting in a temporary culvert. 

D. Other noteworthy programs included: Bicycle Safety (K - 6); Halloween Safety 
(K - 5); the Officer Friendly Program: presented to the students in the 
kindergarten as well as the students in the Orford Day Care. 

Statistical information concerning the police Calls for Service received / responded to this 
year, is listed below:

In closing, I would like to address the issue of RABIES. The New Hampshire Fish and 
Game Department has projected that active cases of rabies will be seen in Grafton County 
this year. The only way that we can fight this epidemic is to insure that all domestic 
animals (dogs and cats) and livestock (sheep, cows, horses, etc.) are vaccinated for 
rabies. Please take a moment and check medical records for animals maintained by you to 
see if their vaccination is current. Questions on this subject can be addressed through 
New Hampshire Fish and Game Department (271-3361) or the Orford Police Department 
(353-4252). 

Harold Jarvis, 
Chief of Police

ORFORD RECYCLING 

The people of Orford continue to support our recycling efforts. A total of 51.7 tons of 
material was recycled this year. This included 26.7 tons of newspaper and 25 tons of 
glass, tin and plastic. For each ton of material that is recycled, we save $52.00 at the 
landfill. 

The recycling trailer is open every Saturday morning from 10:00 to 12:00 at the Town 
Garage on Townshed Road. The following materials can be recycled: 

Newspaper: No shiny inserts 

Glass: All colors, must be clean and caps removed 

Tin Cans: Must be washed and flattened 

Aluminum: Must be clean 

Plastic: We accept plastics labeled #1 and #2. This includes 

milk jugs, soda bottles and detergent bottles. All 
plastics must be washed and the caps removed. 

We would like to thank Floyd Marsh and his crew for the time and effort they put into 
seeing that the recycables are sorted properly and hauled away to the various facilities 
that accept them. 



76 



ROAD AGENT 

The spring of 1993 brought us a blizzard, slippery roads and brooks and streams backing 
up from ice jams. Although there were many hours put in keeping up with the storm, we 
handled the blizzard and the cleanup afterwards without difficulty. I learned that because 
of the blizzard there might be Federal funds available to the Town to recover some of the 
money spent on this blizzard. Working with Rita Pease, our Civil Defense Director, and the 
Selectmen, I collected the figures and submitted them on the necessary documents and 
brought them to the Federal Emergency Management Agency which resulted in $2,135.00 
for the Town. Two other projects resulted in savings for the Town this year. The fuel 
storage building that was designed and built behind the Town garage by Hal Jarvis, our 
police chief, and the Town crew resulted in a saving of over $800.00 from June to 
December. We installed a cement pad next to this building to store our cold patch on so we 
saved a couple of hundred dollars there because there is no waste. I had also built a rack 
from State surplus steel last year to hang our sand spreaders on. This fall with some 
part-time help a roof was installed on this structure. That will result in more savings for the 
Town in years to come. 

This summer the following roadwork was performed: Strawberry Hill Road had drainage 
work done with six new culverts installed. Huckins Hill Road had two culverts replaced and 
ditching and runoff work done. Orfordville Road had one culvert replaced and some tree 
work done for better site distance and to save on equipment in plowing. Quinttown Road 
had seven culverts replaced and a lot of water runoff areas were cleaned out. Baker Road 
had a lot of trees and brush cut and chipped. I stumped half the area and we put several 
loads of gravel on this stretch to reclaim the road; this section had been neglected for 
years. The Prettyman Road had two culverts installed and a bad corner was removed and 
the trees cut; one area was widened to permit better plowing in winter. This road and East 
Cemetery Road also was ditched and rocks removed. Indian Pond Road had three 
culverts replaced, some drainage work done to get rid of a spring in the middle of the road 
that was causing severe ice problems in the winter. The worse stretch of Dublin Road was 
ripped up and crushed gravel was added in an attempt to solve the problem of heaved 
pavement there. Several large stumps were dug out of the middle of the road and many 
large rocks were removed. Grimes Hill Road had one culvert replaced and we redecked 
and railed the bridge on Bean Brook Road. All of these roads had ditching and water runoff 
work performed during this summer. 

As for paving, we chip sealed six-tenths of a mile on Archertown Road that was paved the 
year before and with some left over we chip sealed the bottom of Townshed Road. I also 
had liquid sealing done on River Road and the rest of Townshed Road. A lot of culvert work 
and tree work that was done over the summer was because I hired part-time help. Without 
this help we would not have completed so many projects which proves we need more help. 
There is without a doubt more work needed to be done to all of the roads that we worked on 
this year. I strongly urge the Town's people and the Selectmen to work with the other 
department heads to develop a Town master plan and to follow it. The need is there but it 
takes cooperation and support for it to become a reality. 

Peter Angwin, 
Road Agent

ORFORD SKI PROGRAM 

The program again offered beginner, intermediate and advanced instruction in alpine 
skiing on eight consecutive Wednesday afternoons from the beginning of January to 
mid-March at the Dartmouth Skiway in Lyme, New Hampshire. Bus transportation is 
provided to and from the Skiway. The program is open to all students of the Orford 
Schools from Kindergarten through 12th Grade. 

A total of 72 students participated with all K through 8th Grade students skiing under the 
supervision of an instructor and 15 high school students enjoying "free skiing." An 
all-volunteer group of 15 instructors and many helpers gave of their time this year. The 
weather cooperated beautifully and there were no cancellations due to weather or 
conditions. The Skiway provided excellent man-made snow for the early season and we all 
enjoyed the abundant natural snow in late season. Our sincere thanks to Don Cutter and 
his crew at the Skiway for all the help and special accommodations given us. 

Each year we try to single out individuals for special THANK YOU'S for their dedicated 
work. Since most volunteers offer their services year after year, we try to spread the 
kudos around. This year they go to Bill Ross Jr. for trucking all the skis to and from the 
Skiway every week and Debbie McGoff for again riding the bus to answer the thousands of 
questions each week. These are two truly thankless jobs! 

The 1994 season is off to a fast start with 66 students signed up and several new, 
advanced level instructors. We welcome one and all so just give us a call if you'd like to 
help. 

SKI PROGRAM COORDINATORS

SWIM PROGRAM 

The 1993 Swim Program ran for three weeks from July 19th through August 6th. The 
weather during those weeks caused many lessons to be cancelled. 

Teddy Valencia was our instructor again this year. There were 50 Orford swimmers and 19 
non-Orford swimmers. 

This year our raft was padlocked and no longer "free floating." Many thanks to Gene Dyke 
and his helpers for putting our docks in and out. 



Thank you for your support.

CONNECTICUT RIVER JOINT COMMISSION 
UPPER VALLEY RIVER SUBCOMMITTEE 

In January the Town appointed Pat Tullar and Jean Dyke as its representatives to the 
Upper Valley River Subcommittee of the Connecticult River Joint Commissions. This 
advisory group, formed under the New Hampshire Rivers Management and Protection Act 
of 1 992, includes members from riverfront towns on both sides of the River, from Piermont 
to Lebanon, NH and Bradford to Hartford, VT. Legislation in both states urges these 
members and towns to work together for the benefit of the River and residents of its 
valley. The Subcommittee includes, by law, members who represent local government, 
local business, agriculture, recreation, conservation, and riverfront landowners. 

Four other such subcommittees are also at work up and downstream from our region. All of 
the subcommittees are advisory and have no regulatory powers. 

The Subcommittee has three duties: first, to develop a management plan for the river 
corridor that may later be taken under advisement by the towns; second, to review and 
comment to State agencies on permit applications that involve the River; and third, to 
advise State and Federal agencies and the Joint River Commissions on local matters 
affecting the River. 

To date, the Upper Valley Subcommittee has reviewed and upgraded current knowledge 
about the River-related resources that exist in our Town, and has learned about the 
various provisions that now exist for the River in the Town's master plan and zoning 
regulations. The Subcommittee has also adopted rules of procedure and elected officers. 
Members have met with the Selectmen and with other Town boards. The group has toured 
the River by boat to examine erosion problems and other features of the riverbank. It has 
planned out a schedule for developing the River plan, which has been used as a model for 
the other subcommittees to follow. This plan, which will be developed by and for the 
citizens of our region's riverfront towns, will reflect the character of the Connecticut River 
in our region and the ways in which our Town uses and values the River. The plan which we 
anticipate will take a few years to complete, will be advisory, although it may be adopted 
by New Hampshire towns in lieu of the required New Hampshire Shoreland Protection 
Ordinance. 

The Subcommittee has also reviewed permits for the Ledyard Bridge, aquatic nuisance 
control at Lake Morey, the Piermont-Bradford Bridge repair, and streambank stabilization 
projects proposed for Bradford, Wilder and Hanover. Any residents of the Town who would 
like to attend the meetings are invited to do so. The Upper Valley River Subcommittee 
meets on the third Monday of each month from 7:00 to 9:00 P.M., alternating between the 
Lyme Town Office and the North Thetford Library. 

Respectfully submitted, 

Pat Tullar

GRAFTON COUNTY COMMISSIONER'S REPORT 

Grafton County Commissioners would like to take this opportunity to present our report to 
the citizens of Grafton County. We continue our goals of efficient county services and 
work diligently to maintain prudent budgets and tax requirements. 

In keeping with the Town of Littleton's theme of "Our Volunteers," we are proud to pay 
tribute to the many volunteers serving the county home, the correctional facility and other 
agencies, schools, hospitals, etc., throughout Grafton County. 

At the Grafton County Department of Corrections we are blessed to have Dick and Betty 
Abbott teaching two Thresholds / Decisions classes a year, which has appreciably 
reduced the recidivism rate. We also commend Bruce Newton for his work in alcohol and 
narcotics programs, Kathy Lovell for her substance abuse counselling program and Ralph 
Hysong for special services. 

The Grafton County Nursing Home receives many volunteer hours from local citizens and 
the RSVP program. The Nursing Home holds a special Recognition Day to honor these 
valuable volunteers. 

The Commissioners nominate individuals and groups to receive the Governor's Volunteer 
Recognition award in September. This year's individual award went to Leslie Backstrom for 
bringing new programs, volunteers and funds to the Warren school, and the Grafton 
County RSVP Knitters Group received the group award for 12,000 hours and 1400 knit 
items completed and distributed to schools, hospitals and other agencies. 

We apologize for not being able to recognize all volunteers in this short space. However, 
we are fortunate to have so many throughout Grafton County that it would be hard to name 
them all. 

Grafton County Commissioners have had an active year working on long range planning 
for equipment and space needs and on other progressive projects such as the expansion 
to the Nursing Home's Special Needs Unit. The County Corrections Facility is now using 
electronic monitoring at inmate expense to allow house arrest, and the County Farm has 
reduced its payroll with the installation of a new milk line system. As with towns, we 
continue to be frustrated by ever-expanding Federal and State cost shifting. 



81 



Grafton County Commissioner's Report (continued) 

In closing, we wish to express our sincere appreciation to local officials, agencies and the 
public for cooperating in our efforts to better serve the citizens of Grafton County. And 
please remember that the Commissioners are at your service for local government 
education forums and slide show presentations. Commissioners meet Tuesdays at 9:00 
A.M., and may be reached at 787-6941 or by mail to RR 1, Box 67, North Haverhill, NH 
03774-9758. 

Respectfully submitted, 

GRAFTON COUNTY COMMISSIONERS 
Betty Jo Taffe, Chairman (District #3) 
Barbara B. Hill, Vice Chairman (District #1) 
Raymond S. Burton, Clerk (District #2)

GRAFTON COUNTY SENIOR CITIZENS COUNCIL 

Grafton County Senior Citizens Council, Inc. provides services to older residents of 
Orford through the Orford Area Senior Services. These services include home delivered 
meals, a senior dining room program, transportation, outreach and social work services, 
health education, recreation, information and referral, as well as opportunities for older 
individuals to be of service to their communities through volunteering. 

Any Orford resident over the age of 60 or members of his / her family are eligible to use the 
services of GCSCC. Handicapped individuals under the age of 60 may also be served 
through these programs. Although there are no charges for the services, the Agency does 
request contributions toward the cost of services. 

During 1993, 71 Orford residents were served through all of GCSCC's programs. Our staff 
works closely with other agencies providing services to older people in the community to 
assist older Orford residents and their families in taking advantage of available programs 
and services which will improve the quality of their lives and enable them to remain in their 
own community for as long as possible. 

GCSCC very much appreciates the support of the Orford community for services which 
enhance the independence of older residents of Orford. 

Carol W. Dustin, ASCW 
Executive Director 



HOSPICE OF THE UPPER VALLEY 

Hospice of the Upper Valley, Inc. (HUV) is a voluntary, community -based human service 
organization which addresses issues of life-threatening illness, death and bereavement. 
Our emphasis is on caring; we encourage ourselves and others to attend to the wholeness

and hope you will continue to support our services. 

For the first eleven months in 1993, Hospice served 337 patient /families in our various 
areas of service, of which 8 have been from Orford.

towns, including Orford. 

Respectfully submitted,

TRI-COUNTY COMMUNITY ACTION / LISTEN 

The Town of Orford provided $494.00 in support of LISTEN'S outreach services offered in 
cooperation with Tri-County Community Action Program. Town -supported services 
include: Housing and Utility Assistance, Food Assistance and Financial Counseling and 
Advocacy. LISTEN also provides additional services including Children and Family 
Programs as well as the Thrift Stores which are not funded by the Town. 

The purpose of LISTEN services is to help individuals and families become economically 
independent. The agency provides assistance with basic necessities which might 
otherwise be the responsibility of the Town welfare office. A total of $9,560.00 in actual 
goods and direct financial aid was provided to 62 residents in 1993. So, for every dollar 
spent by Orford for LISTEN services, residents received $19.35 in direct assistance. This 
does not include the value of counseling and advocacy also provided at no cost to 
residents.

UPPER VALLEY AMBULANCE 

Upper Valley Ambulance, Inc. has continued to meet the complex challenge of providing 
emergency transport ambulance service to the eight-town region. UVA has enjoyed 
another very successful year in 1993. Our efforts to keep costs down for the townspeople 
by diversifying operations have been flourishing. We are very pleased to announce 
because of our success the Board of Directors of Upper Valley Ambulance have voted to 
maintain the per capita charge to the eight towns at $10.00. We are also able to continue 
to no longer require the member towns to guarantee payment for unpaid ambulance bills. 

Now, to summarize the activities of Upper Valley Ambulance. The primary focus for the 
ambulance service is to provide transport services. We project a volume of 450 
emergency patient transports from the eight-town area for the year. Also, we expect to do 
250 nonemergency transfers. UVA continues to provide DHMC with transport services for 
their ICN and PICU. We have done 292 of these transports to date this year. In addition 
UVA has continued to transport radiation therapy patients from the Lebanon facility to 
Hanover for treatment and back. Of course, even though we are doing these 
nonemergency services, there is no compromise of the ambulance service to serve its 
primary mission of providing emergency services in the eight-town coverage area. 

We continue to use a mix of full-time and part-time paid ambulance personnel. The day to 
day operations of the ambulance service are being expertly managed by John Vose, 
Administrator and Kevin Cole, Field Supervisor, who report directly to the committee of 
Town Directors, who are appointed by the Selectmen of the towns. UVA has worked very 
hard to become a focal point for training for the local F.A.S.T. squads and Fire 
Departments in the region. Due to our continued commitment to furthering public 
education through CPR and First Aid training, UVA was awarded the "Friends of Oxbow 
Award." 

We have set some ambitious goals for 1994. In order to continue providing superior 
emergency services, we anticipate replacing our first line ambulance with a new vehicle. 
Capital Reserve Funds have been set aside over the last three years to finance this 
undertaking. It has been our goal since we started providing this service to provide the 
highest level of emergency care possible. We have upgraded our service from EMT-Basic 
to EMT-lntermediate which allows the administration of IV fluids and medications. Our goal 
for 1994 is to provide defibrillation for heart attack victims. The defibrillator machines will 
be purchased with funds donated by generous area residents The training classes are 
scheduled for February.

The Upper Valley Lake Sunapee Regional Planning Commission is a voluntary association 
of 31 towns, four in Vermont and 27 New Hampshire communities. The Commission is 
concerned with the development of comprehensive plans for beneficial and balanced

SCHOOL DISTRICT WARRANT 
STATE OF NEW HAMPSHIRE 

County of Grafton, S. S. School District of Orford 

To the inhabitants of the School District of Orford qualified to vote in District affairs: 

You are hereby notified to meet at Memorial Hall in said District on Friday, March 11, at 
4:00 P.M. to act on the following subjects: 

ARTICLE 1. To choose by nonpartisan ballot a Moderator, a Clerk, and a Treasurer, 
each to serve one year, and two members of the School Board, each to serve three years. 
(Polls will open no later than 4:00 P.M. and will close no earlier than 9:00 P.M.) 

NOTE: Articles 2 through 11 will not be considered until 7:00 P.M. 

ARTICLE 2. To see if the School District will authorize the School Board to apply for, 
accept and expend, without further action of the School District Meeting, money from any 
source which becomes available during the fiscal year, provided that (1) such money is 
used for legal purposes for which a school district may appropriate money, (2) the School 
Board holds a public hearing on the expenditure of such money before it is expended, and 
(3) the expenditure of such money does not require the expenditure of other School 
District funds. 

ARTICLE 3. To see if the School District will vote to raise and appropriate the sum of 
Fourteen Thousand, One Hundred Dollars ($14,100.00) to fund fire and safety 
improvements at the Academy Building, as mandated by the State fire marshall. The 
School Board recommends this appropriation. 

ARTICLE 4. To see if the School District will vote to raise and appropriate the sum of 
Thirty Thousand Dollars ($30,000.00) to replace the Middle School roof, and authorize the 
withdrawal of Ten Thousand Dollars ($10,000.00), plus accumulated interest, from the 
Capital Reserve Fund created on March 9, 1990, under provisions of RSA 35:1, for the 
purpose of funding major improvements or renovations to the school buildings. The 
balance of Twenty Thousand Dollars ($20,000.00) is to come from general taxation. The 
School Board recommends this appropriation. (Majority vote required.) 

NOTE: The total cost to replace the Middle School roof is estimated to be $30,000. If 
Article 4 is approved, $20,000 in additional taxes will be required. The balance of 
$10,000 will come from the Capital Reserve fund established in 1990. $5,000 
was placed in this fund during the 1990/91 year, and an additional $5,000 was 
added during the 1991/92 year. 

ARTICLE 5. To see if the School District will vote to raise and appropriate the sum of 
Fifteen Thousand Dollars ($15,000.00) to be added to the Capital Reserve Fund 
established on March 6, 1993, under provisions of RSA 35:1, for the purpose of funding 
the replacement of the gymnasium floor. The School Board does not recommend this 
appropriation. 



94 



School District Warrant (continued) 

ARTICLE 6. To see if the School District will vote to raise and appropriate the sum of 
Five Thousand Dollars ($5,000.00) to be added to the Capital Reserve Fund established 
on March 6, 1993, under provisions of RSA 35:1, for the purpose of funding the 
replacement of the gymnasium floor, and authorize the transfer in that amount from the 
June 30, 1994, fund balance for this purpose, per provisions of RSA 35:11. The School 
Board recommends this appropriation. (Majority vote required.) 

NOTE: If Article 6 is approved, no new taxes will be required. Last year, $5,000 in the 
operating budget was earmarked for repairs to the gym floor, if necessary. None of this 
$5,000 will be spent this year. Article 6 authorizes the transfer of this unspent money to 
the Capital Reserve fund established in 1993 for the purpose of replacing the gymnasium 
floor. During the 1 993/94 year, $20,000 was placed in that Capital Reserve fund. 

ARTICLE 7: To see if the School District will vote to establish the date, time, and place 
of the annual School District meeting to be on the Friday prior to the annual Town Meeting, 
at 7:00 P.M., in the Memorial Hall gymnasium. 

ARTICLE 8: To hear and act on the report of the SAU study committee established at 
the annual School District meeting on March 6, 1993. 

ARTICLE 9: The undersigned voters of the Town of Orford hereby petition the Orford 
School Board to include the following article on the 1994 Annual School District Meeting 
Warrant: 

WHEREAS the Town of Orford has reached the outer limits of what it can raise to fund the 
public education of its children; 

WHEREAS the State of New Hampshire ranks last among all fifty states in its contribution 
to the public education of its children; 

WHEREAS local control of the Orford school budget applies to a relatively small portion of 
the total cost of local public education since districts must comply with unfunded State 
and Federal mandates concerning special education, health and fire safety, 
transportation and facility adequacy, among others; 

WHEREAS the New Hampshire Supreme Court has declared that the State has a 
constitutional duty to provide universal education and to support the schools; 

WHEREAS the New Hampshire Supreme Court has declared that, given the complexities 
of our society today, the State's constitutional duty extends beyond mere reading, writing 
and arithmetic to include broad educational opportunities needed in today's society to 
prepare citizens for their role as participants and as potential competitors in today's 
marketplace of ideas; 



95 



School District Warrant (continued) 

WHEREAS the New Hampshire Supreme Court has sent back to the trial court for further 
hearing the question whether the heavy reliance on property taxes to finance New 
Hampshire public schools results in an unreasonable, disproportionate, and burdensome 
tax in violation of the New Hampshire constitutional prohibition against disproportionate 
and unreasonable taxes; 

WHEREAS 

the five plaintiff school districts are unable to match the financial resources 
available to Attorney General's office in pursuit of this continuing litigation; 

NOW THEREFORE BE IT RESOLVED that the Orford School District see whether the 
District will vote to appropriate the sum of $750.00 to help support the Claremont Lawsuit 
Coalition which comprises the five districts (Claremont, Allenstown, Pittsfield, Lisbon and 
Franklin) which have sued the State of New Hampshire for the right of all children to have 
an equal opportunity to receive an adequate education regardless of the relative wealth or 
lack thereof of the town in which such children happen to live due to New Hampshire's near 
total reliance on property taxes to fund education. (Inserted by petition.) The School 
Board recommends this appropriation. 

ARTICLE 10: To see if the School District will vote to raise and appropriate the sum of 
One Million, Nine Hundred Four Thousand, Nine Hundred Eleven Dollars ($1,904,911.00), 
in addition to the sums appropriated under Articles 3, 4, 5, and 6 above, for the support of 
schools, for the payment of salaries for School District officials and agents and for the 
payment of statutory obligations for the District. 

ARTICLE 11. To transact any other business that may legally come before this 
meeting. 

Given under our hands and seals at said Orford this fifteenth day of February, 1994.

Doug Tifft 

Kathy Blanchard 

Comments and concerns: The Board was commended for their 
position on teacher contracts and urged to hold their position. 
Thanks were extended to the Board for their efforts in presenting 
the budget, thanks to those dedicated teachers in our district who 
give so much of themselves; a proposal that existing med package, 
salaries and benefits be combined. Concern expressed for a 
budget cap and where cuts may be made and the effect on the 
quality of education. Question on the need for the additional 
teaching staff in relation to anticipated tuition and the classes now 
in place. 

Amended Motion: By Robb Thomson the amount to be raised for 
the support of schools, in addition to Articles 3 and 4 be ONE 
MILLION, EIGHT HUNDRED TEN THOUSAND, SIX HUNDRED 
FORTY-EIGHT DOLLARS ($1,810,648.00) for the support of 
schools, for the payment of salaries for School District officials and 
agents and for the payment of statuatory obligations of the District.

PRINCIPAL'S REPORT 

To the School Board, Superintendent, and citizens of the Orford School District, I 
respectfully submit this, my first annual report as Principal of the Orford Schools. 

Perhaps one of the most essential things a new Principal must do at the onset of his 
tenure as building manager is to assess with his staff the learning and fiscal needs of his 
school and then to "chart a course" (establish a theme, if you will) that addresses those 
areas of determined need. As a result of my many and ongoing deliberations, the following 
topics have been determined to be of prime concern and will be central to my focus for the 
current school year. 

Communication, both within our school and without, has been clearly identified as an area 
to be addressed. A Kindergarten through Grade 12 school such as Orford with three 
distinct levels (elementary, middle school and high school) sharing a common physical 
plant and personnel resources, i.e. art teacher, physical education teacher, industrial arts 
staff, etc. as well as overlapping master schedules, need clear channels of 
communication systemically and efficiently implemented. Faculty meetings, routinely 
scheduled and held in addition to meetings of special area interest, i.e. student services, 
pupil services team, guidance, etc. with determined outcomes are cardinal to such an 
effective communication strategy. Additionally, timely and "directed" memos as well as 
other routinely implemented internal communication devices have contributed 
measureably to achieving our improved communication objectives. 

Communication with our constituents, the Orford community as well as our tuition-based 
towns, is also essential if our schools are to progress in directions we feel are appropriate 
and meaningful. To accomplish this, I've scheduled in conjunction with the 
"Communication Subcommittee" of the School Board monthly meetings in the community 
hosted by various families in order to "reach out" to our constituents and provide a forum 
that would encourage a meaningful dialogue between myself and members of the school 
community. Additionally, in the interest of improved communication and to further 
facilitate the exchange of news and ideas, the School Board in conjunction with school 
personnel have produced The Orford Educator which was sent to boxholders in Orford 
and surrounding communities for the first time in January. It will be our intent to produce 
this newsletter on a quarterly basis inviting responses from individuals, featuring relevant 
topics and articles and sharing pertinent and timely news from the school. 

A second topic of concern which has emerged from my interaction with faculty and staff is 
establishment of standards of excellence that promote levels of student accomplishment 
we feel should result from our comprehensive curriculum, programs, and related services. 
To insure that predetermined goals and objectives in this regard are met, I've established 
standing committees whose assignments are to review various components of the 
curriculum, and related disciplines in addition to concommital programs and services 
inclusive of the delivery of same. The net result of these determined committees working 
towards goals of excellence has already started to produce desired results. Revised 
curriculums that meet more specifically identified student needs in addition to higher 



106 



Principal's Report (continued) 

academic standards in conjunction with the consistent applications of rules and 
regulations is just the beginning. Delivery of required services, the development of 
necessary programs and services in addition to the refinement of existing ones are also 
part of this all-inclusive effort. 

In conclusion, I would like to take this opportunity to thank everyone who has helped 
make my first months as Principal of Orford Schools a rewarding and stimulating 
experience. I am sure that with the continued support of our excellent staff and the 
committed parents and citizens of Orford, et al we will be able to provide an outstanding 
educational program limited only by the finite qualifications of fiscal responsibility. 

Sincerely, 

George S. Burlison 
Principal

INDEPENDENT AUDITORS' REPORT 

To the School Board 
Orford School District 
Orford, New Hampshire 

We have audited the accompanying general-purpose financial statements of the Orford 
School District, Orford, New Hampshire, as of and for the year ended June 30, 1993, as 
listed in the table of contents. These general-purpose financial statements are the 
responsibility of the Orford School District, Orford, New Hampshire's, management. Our 
responsibility is to express an opinion on these general-purpose financial statements 
based on our audit. 

We conducted our audit in accordance with generally accepted auditing standards. Those 
standards require that we plan and perform the audit to obtain reasonable assurance 
about whether the general-purpose financial statements are free of material 
misstatement. An audit includes examining, on a test basis, evidence supporting the 
amounts and disclosures in the general-purpose financial statements. An audit also 
includes assessing the accounting principles used and significant estimates made by 
management, as well as evaluating the overall general-purpose financial statement 
presentation. We believe that our audit provides a reasonable basis for our opinion. 

The general-purpose financial statements referred to above do not include the 
Expendable Trust Fund and General Fixed Assets Account Group, which should be 
included to conform with generally accepted accounting principles. The amounts that 
should be recorded in the Expendable Trust Fund and General Fixed Asset Account Group 
are not known. 

In our opinion, except for the effect on the general-purpose financial statements of the 
omissions described in the preceding paragraph, the general-purpose financial 
statements referred to above present fairly, in all material respects, the financial position 
of the Orford School District, Orford, New Hampshire, as of June 30, 1993, and the results 
of its operations for the year then ended in conformity with generally accepted accounting 
principles. 

Our audit was made for the purpose of forming an opinion on the general-purpose financial 
statements taken as a whole. The combining and individual fund financial statements and 
schedules listed in the table of contents are presented for purposes of additional analysis 
and are not a required part of the general-purpose financial statements of the Orford 
School District, Orford, New Hampshire. Such information has been subjected to the 
auditing procedures applied in the audit of the general-purpose financial statements and, 
in our opinion, is fairly presented in all material respects in relation to the general-purpose 
financial statements taken as a whole.
